If your SA160 is "dead", but, works on headphones I will gladly give you $30 for it.....or.....you can take a "tie" like the one found on a loaf of bread and root around in the headphone jack. For some reason, plugging and unplugging headphones confuses the system and doinking around in the jack like a teenager on prom night with something non conductive that won't get hung up makes it all right again.
Probably discharges the caps or something. Probably not the best thing in the world for it though. I have a Adcom amp which does the same thing from time to time, I'm just loathe to do that. Any idea what a real fix would be?
Here's the "real fix". The problem is that the solder has deteriorated on the jack. Take it apart, and take a look at the circuit board on the other side of the jack. There's several pins that both conduct current AND attach it to the board. Take a soldering iron and heat up each pin and give it a little drop of quality solder. Problem. Solved.
Yeah, that's a fairly common problem with electronics. A nice easy fix!
